    Firstly, welcome to the forum.
    Secondly, further description of the rattle might help with pinpointing the fault.

    Thank you for your time when driving going up a hill or putting foot down a bit the noise is like a top end rattle but if I put clutch in and rev engine it sounds ok so now thinking gearbox or clutch but there is no clutch slip or power loss thanks

    The one that starts!
    The ML developed a rattle in similar circumstances from the top front of the engine, it slowly got worse ending up all the time when revved. Turned out to be the High pressure pump drive dog wearing until it cracked up....
